Well, he definitely tries hard out there. Since he got benched, he's definitely been trying to be better. You can see it, and it's fairly obvious.

Trying hard is not going to get him a free pass against JVR though since JVR is trying hard as well.

JVR also doesn't overstay his shifts, he doesn't dangle alone through defenders and lose the puck, he works hard down low along the boards on the forecheck, and he knows to stand around the net.

The last few games, especially last game, JVR was definitely going into corners.
